Security managers argue about saying no

AUSTRALIAN security managers disagree on whether it is their job to say no to potentially risky security projects.

At an IDC SecurityVision 2004 seminar, chief security officers debated their roles in managing risk.

Allens Arthur Robinson Brisbane IS support manager Robert Thomson says being a security manager is about “having spine and saying no”.

This means erring on the side of managing risk sensibly. “This is why wireless connectivity has not happened within my organisation, as we are not sure of the risks,” he says.
